The V7ndotcom Elursrebmem SEO (Search Engine Optimization) contest started on January 15th, 2006. At that time, a Google search for the V-E phrase showed zero results. Three months later, there are over 6,000,000 results as SEO's worldwide strive to rank #1 in Google for that nonsense phrase and compete for the $7,000 first prize. The article web site documents the history/status of the contest and is currently in the #5 spot. One unique twist in that it will give all of the money to charity - Celiac Disease Research. Does this "green-hat" page stand a chance against those black-hat SEO's as they use all of their nefarious tricks against Google - stay tuned as the contest ends May 15th.
